    Could be, didn't get to spend too long there but they have everything.

    Test mounted the radiator, links up nicely with the stock hoses, shouldn't be too tricky to mount it off the original oil cooler mounts, we shall see...

    Don't worry I'll still be working on the VFR, just more slowly.

    She's off to an exhaust shop soon for a link pipe.

    Front Fender, headlight and brackets arrived. Bar risers also arrived but haven't got them mounted yet.

    Looks like rad clearance won't be as much of an issue as I thought. Next challenge will be the new oil cooler.

    Great build!!! What was the height of the rider seat once all finished? Looked on the photos it was much higher than the stock and I got 29-30" inseem to deal with :) Really thinking on doing that CBR tail. I have done Gen 6 tail end on Gen 5 and it came out nice. But having only One can under seat saves some weight and bet that aluminum subframe is light compared to steel sub of Gen 6 VFR. Thanks.

    Seat height was about the same as stock 5th gen but it's much skinnier so personally, I found it easier to flat foot.

    And yeah, heeaps lighter

    Did you have to do some custom connection to the exhaust pipe to the colle tor pipe or it lined up properly?

    Yeah I had a custom link pipe made up, cost me about $150 so not too bad.

    Don't use it anymore though so it's yours if you decide to do the tail swap.

    How do you find single front radiator vs stock side 2 radiators temperature differences? Which ones keep bike cooler? Thanks.

    Temps while moving are the exact same, while stationary the single radiator setup gets pretty hot as it doesn't have a fan. I suspect if it did they would perform similarly while stationary as well.

    You did not put fan because you decided not to or was it a fit issue?

    Fit issue due to the short CBR forks, would probably be able to fit a fan if you had stock front end geometry
